Memorial Garden

The Memorial Garden provides a space for both community celebration and commemoration of those who have gone before. A curvilinear granite wall provides space to engrave names of members and friends who have passed, reminding us of their legacies in our worship services, in building our church community, and in speaking out for environmental awareness. We want to remember their strong voices for social service and action, so that together we can always offer spiritual growth and community action to all who will enter what we hope will always be the open doors of our church community. The Memorial Garden was dedicated by Reverend Mark Harris and the community in May 2019.
